Friends is still one of the most iconic TV shows of all time, and though some of the comedy and storylines havn’nt exactly aged well, its fanbase will likely still continue to grow as the years go by. Now that all 10 seasons are easily available to binge on HBO Max, we’re sure younger generations will pick it up and become new fans just like we once were.
For those who followed along with Friends when it was on the air back in the 1990s, you’ll remember how fun it was waiting for new episodes and getting to see the actors change over the seasons. Running from 1994 to 2004, each cast member understandably aged and their styles seriously evolved with the times.
We’ve gathered up a handful of photos of the cast from throughout the show’s run below, which is sure to get any Friends fan in their feels! So without further ado, check out the pics and be sure to let us know which are your favorites.

Of course, the Friends cast reunited after years in 2021 for the highly-anticipated reunion special which debuted on HBO Max. According to Variety, Friends: The Reunion was watched by about 29% of streaming households in the United States on the first day of its release in May. Fans were without a doubt super excited to tune in, especially because the special was delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We hope the Friend cast continues to get together even if they don’t have another televised reunion, so at least we can get new photos of the Central Perk gang all together again!
